    Hi sangeetha,

    Basically Civil engineering and architecture are similar, with some key differences.

    Architecture is related to arts work. Architects design the buildings mainly focusing on the interiors. They have less technical and engineering knowledge about the buildings. And on the other hand civil engineers focuses on the structure of the building. They make sure that the building is strong and can stand for a long time. Civil engineers focuses on science and technology. So it can be concluded that civil engineering majorly deals with the construction on new buildings and architecture helps to improve the looks of the building.

    Basically Architects design the layout whereas Civil Engineers execute the design made by the Architects. Architects just design and Civil Engineers build the design made by the Architects. This is the difference between Architecture and Civil Engineering.

    Architecture is typically a practice of designing various structures by keeping aesthetics and spatial functionality in consideration. Architects may have the basic understanding of structural mechanics, but they mainly emphasis upon look, feel and functionality of designs. Structural vision starts in the field of architecture. They design areas like schools, residential places, public parks, etc., to make them visually beautiful.

    On the other hand, civil engineering specializes in different structural elements of systems, ensuring that building can easily withstand extreme loading conditions. Civil engineers mainly design dams, buildings, bridges, roadways and water systems.

    Civil engineering, also referred as structural engineering, specializes in the structural elements of systems, ensuring that facilities can withstand normal and extreme loading conditions. Civil engineers work towards converting the vision of architect into a realization. Civil engineers deliberates on the physics, which is involved in the construction process of the design of the architect.

    Thank you 🙂
